EDSO confirms its support for open data as a valuable resource for the European economy and society. As neutral market facilitators, DSOs are in a position to gather, collect and make available data that is useful for the wider public.

Ahead of the ITRE vote on the recast of the Public Sector Information (PSI) Directive, EDSO publishes a number of key messages on this important file:

I. Avoid a horizontal approach to re-use of data and take into account existing sectoral rules and security risks.

II. Public undertakings and specifically operators of Critical Infrastructure (CI) should be exempted from the scope of the Directive for privacy and security reasons.

III. Clarify the scope and content of high value data sets (Art. 13). Give DSOs flexibility in the provision of dynamic data.
